The CAMROSE BOOSTER August 28, 2012

Camrose residents can do their part to conserve water Replace Your Toilet. Your toilet can be responsible for 90 per cent of all leaks. Check all faucets. A leaky faucet may simply need a new washer. You can also install highefficiency, low flow faucet aerators. Replace or adjust sticky toilet handles. Handles that stick in place allow water to run constantly down the drain. Take shorter showers. Limit showers to five minutes to save on water and electricity. Replace your showerhead with a low-flow version. Low-flow showerheads increase efficiency without sacrificing performance. Don't let the sink run continuously. When washing dishes by hand, fill the second side of the sink with rinse water. Don't run the tap until water gets cold. Instead, keep a pitcher of drinking water in the fridge. Rinse the container and change the water every few days. Install an aerator attachment on your sink faucets. Aerators reduce water use by 25 per cent by creating a forceful stream at a reduced flow rate. Adjust the amount of water according to the size of the laundry load. If your clothes washer isn't adjustable, make sure you have a full load of laundry before washing. Replace an old washing machine with an Energy Star rated model. Depending on the model, they can use as much as sixty per cent less water. Use drip irrigation. It is the most effective method when it comes to watering plants and flowerbeds.


City programs help conserve water By Dan Jensen

The City of Camrose wants to help you save on your water bills. The City has started the distribution of water conservation kits containing a low flow showerhead, kitchen swivel aerator, bathroom aerators, toilet tank bags, an adjustable flapper, shower timer, leak detection tablets and teflon tape, as well as tips on what you can do to conserve water. "They help you save water around the home and ultimately lower your water bills," said Audrey Dahler, who is in the midst of an eight-month stint with the City as a municipal engineer co-op student. The City has given away almost 20 of the 50 kits with which it started in the spring. "We've been holding draws, which people can enter at City Hall, the engineering department in Mirror Lake Centre and the Aquatic Centre," said Dahler. "We have also been setting a few aside for those who have really high water bills." The City chose the draw process to get the kits into the hands of those who are serious about doing their part to conserve water. "The people who enter the draw and come to pick them up are usually more likely to use the kits," said Dahler. The City has also been promoting the toilet rebate program which ends for the year September 28. The program provides a $70 rebate to anyone who replaces a 13 litre unit with one that is six litres or less, and a 25 per cent rebate up to $50 on any additional toilet. "Interest in the program started off slow in 2008 but it has been growing," said assistant municipal engineer Jeremy Enarson. "We're now seeing 120 to 140 toilets being replaced under the program every year." While the savings that are realized from replacing toilets may seem fairly insignificant when looked at short-term, they add up. "You don't notice it as much on houses as you do on apartment buildings or condos," said Enarson. "The owner of an apartment building who replaced 46 toilets saw a 50 per cent reduction in water usage." The City is hoping to be more proactive with the toilet rebate program this fall by encouraging

Audrey Dahler and Jeremy Enarson with the contents of a water conservation kit.

greater participation from local hotels and restaurants. The City of Camrose believes that, by making people aware of water conservation, it can first, reduce the amount of money it spends on cleaning, treating and distributing water, and second, achieve the goal, adopted by members of the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association, of reducing water usage levels by 30 per cent from 2005 levels. "As Camrose continues to grow we are becoming more and more aware of the need for water conservation," said Enarson. Under the existing agreement with Alberta Environment, the City of Camrose is restricted in the amount of water it can draw from Dried Meat Lake. "Based on the current water consumption uses within the City we estimate the population base we could support the way things are set up now is somewhere between 22,000 and 23,000," said Enarson. "The City does have an application in to the province about additional allocation from the lake but as of today we still have not heard anything with regards to where it stands." The City and other munici-

palities have had discussions with the province about supplementing flows in the Battle River from other sources, such as the North Saskatchewan River. "It is pretty unlikely that something will happen in the near future," said Enarson. "Instead, the province is encouraging all users, such as the City, to look at what they can do with the existing watershed, including exploring efficiencies to the present way of doing things. If we can get a 10 per cent reduction in water usage we can increase the population we can support by 10 per cent." Charts prepared by the City show that the average daily water withdrawals from Dried Meat Lake per person is approximately 380 litres per day. The water withdrawal from Dried Meat Lake by Camrose and other communities hooked into the City system in 2011 was just over 2,500,000 cubic litres. Dahler believes the water conservation kits and the toilet rebate program are helping spread the message that water conservation is important. "They are educating people," she said, "that it is just good practice to be aware of how much you are using and how you are

impacting the water system and the environment as a whole. People are realizing that what they do has an impact on the system." Dahler is making plans to go into Camrose schools with the water conservation message, hoping that the lessons that the children learn there will be relayed to the parents. "We are looking at all the ways we can proceed with our public education campaign," she said. Dahler will be finished her work as a municipal engineer coop student at the end of December, after which she will be returning to the University of Alberta for year three of a five-year program in chemical engineering. "I am interested in water and in the technical side of water treatment, but I am still not sure where I will end up," she said. I still have a few more years of schooling to figure it out." Dahler said the opportunity to work with the public on the water conservation kit and toilet rebate programs has been a great experience in that it has allowed her to make connections with the public and obtain insight on issues that they consider to be important.

Open Door to celebrate opening of new Keystone Centre By Dan Jensen

The Camrose Open Door Association will be celebrating the opening of its Keystone Centre on the former Gardner College site Sept. 6. A short program and ribbon cutting at 10:30 a.m. will be followed by building tours and refreshments. "Keystone Centre is available to make a difference in the lives of Camrose residents for many years to come," said Camrose Open Door Association executive director Randal Nickel. "We're maintaining the Gardner College tradition of providing growth

and learning opportunities for youth and young adults." The Camrose Open Door Association took possession of the former Gardner College main building and dormitory in November, 2011. "The dormitory was renovated to provide eight emergency housing beds for youth ages 16 to 24," said Nickel. "New flooring and windows were installed, walls were painted, and kitchen spaces were developed. The rooms are much brighter and provide a great space for someone to feel at home. A great new addition to the upper

floor is a cozy kitchen where residents and Open Door staff can share a meal." The lower floor features four one-bedroom apartments with kitchens and bathrooms, a change from the eight rooms that were there before. "These apartments are a new addition to the Open Door services," said Nickel. "They will provide four young adults with an opportunity to live for up to a year in a space that they can call home and learn what it takes to keep their own place. Supports will be in place to help with this transformation."

The former main building received new flooring and paint on both floors to create an office environment. "The Camrose Open Door welcomed Camrose Adult Learning Council as the first tenant within the main building when they (CALC) moved their offices into the second floor in January, 2012," said Nickel. Most of the renovations of the main building were completed with the support of volunteers and discounted materials from local businesses and individuals, including Wideman Paint &

Decor, Wideman Carpet One, ProLawn, Wayne Hartman, Jackie Wideman, John Mize and Bonnie Maurer and others. Willie and Verna Ewert and Don Maurer volunteered to maintain the buildings and grounds and clean out the old library. The word "keystone" refers to something on which associated things depend. It also means anchor, foundation, support, root, basis and principle. "All of these aspects fit well into our mission for the facility and the work that we do," said Nickel.

Exciting street hockey tournament held next month for charity By Murray Green

The fifth annual Street Hockey Tournament will be held on Saturday, September 8, at Camrose Cycle. "All you need is four players to make up a team," said organizer Bruce Olsen. "We have had as many as 16 teams and we need a few more this year. I need eight confirmed teams by the end of the month or it may be cancelled." Bruce has made it easy for teams to enter. "I supply the jerseys; we have 16 sets. I also have four sets of goalie equipment, so all the teams have to do is supply the players and sticks." Each team receives a minimum of four games, but the exact number depends on the total entries. The games begin at 9 a.m. and each game lasts 15 minutes. Cooperatives won the first

year and the Camrose Police Association claimed the title in the second year. Two years ago the Deans won and last year it was the Loverboys who earned the trophy. Both the Loverboys and the Deans are back to retain or reclaim the title. "There is an entry fee. Each player should bring at least $5 worth of food for the Food Bank or make a $5 donation to the Help Fund," said Bruce. "We are holding this tournament to have fun and support local charities." If you don't have a full team, or just want to register individually, that's fine too. A team can be made up of individuals. "Each year we take over the street next to our building, set up boards and nets, and play street hockey," added Bruce. "Hot dogs, snacks and drinks are available

Oslanski picked up by Everett By Murray Green

Camrose born defenceman Landon Oslanski is going back to the Western Hockey League (WHL) for one more year. Landon played for the Lethbridge Hurricanes last season, but the team put the overage defenceman on waivers this summer. The Everett Silvertips acquired Landon Oslanski off waivers from Lethbridge. Landon has played three full seasons in the WHL. Last season the 6-foot, 202-pound veteran had six goals and 26 assists for 32 points and was assessed 94 penalty minutes in 71 games.

He was a third-round pick by the Spokane Chiefs in the 2007 bantam draft. His acquisition gives Everett more experience on defence for the fall. Ryan Murray and Nick Walters are the only defencemen the Silvertips have returning. However, Murray could play in the National Hockey League (NHL) this season as a 19-yearold with the Columbus Blue Jackets. Landon would provide an experienced option, should Murray not return. WHL teams are allowed three overage players (20-yearold players).

Buy tickets, build a place families can call home Submitted

You may have seen them around town. Or perhaps a little birdie has told you about them. Colourful birdhouse creations are popping up all over Camrose in support of Habitat for Humanity. The 35 birdhouses are part of the Camrose affiliate's fall fund-raising drive to raise $15,000 to help complete the construction of a four-plex for four hardworking families in need of a safe, decent and affordable place to live. The birdhouses, which have been decorated by local businesses and volunteers, are being displayed at businesses around the city, where members of the public will have a chance to bid on them in advance of the organization's fall fundraising banquet. Final bidding will take place at the fall banquet September 7, at the Norsemen Inn. While you may see some of the creations in your day to day travels around Camrose, the best place to see all of the birdhouses will be at the banquet. Dinner is at 7 p.m., followed by a silent auction. Local businesses have also donated a number of items that will be part of the silent auction. "Businesses have been very generous," says affiliate president Mark Schneider. "We have a couple of rounds of golf and a weekend getaway, among other items." The evening will also feature entertainment and guest speaker Dr. Roger Epp, former dean of the Augustana campus of the University of Alberta. Tickets for the banquet are $50 each or $350 for a table of eight, and can be reserved by contacting Leona at 780-781-4800 or Charlotte at 780-781-7196, or by visiting the Habitat ReStore located at 5007-46 Street. Habitat for Humanity Camrose builds decent, simple and affordable homes in partnership with families and the community. Habitat for Humanity Camrose was formed in 1996, and, to date, has built 18 homes. Habitat homes are built with, not for, the families who will purchase them. Selected families pay for their homes with no-interest mortgages. Mortgage payments go into a "Fund for Humanity" which is used to build future Habitat homes.

Retrospective of Beaver's art shown Submitted

The Chuck MacLean Arts Centre will have a retrospective show of the late Glenda Beaver from Sept. 5 to Oct. 4 as part of the Camrose Alberta Culture Days. The Alberta Culture Days are designated as September 28 to 30, but this show is too good to have up for only three days, so it will be up most of the month. For more information on Alberta Culture Days go to Glenda was born on November 19, 1937, and passed away on July 17, 2010. Over the course of her life she was very prolific and we are very happy to be able to share 37 pieces out of thousands! Glenda’s husband John shared the following biography: For Glenda Lea (Ferneau) Beaver, art has been a lifelong passion. As a young girl she wanted to be an artist. A bachelor’s degree in art, teacher training in art and two years of post degree university art stud-

ies were all included in her postsecondary preparation. Later, short courses from watercolourists such as Edgar A. Whitney, Doris McCarthy, Szoltan Szabo and Frank Web rounded out her training at the professional level. Glenda shared her enthusiasm for watercolour by teaching classes, conducting workshops, and giving two instructional videos “Watercolour Techniques on Wet Paper” and “Watercolour on Dry Paper.” Glenda painted exclusively in watercolours after 1977 and enjoyed international achievements. Twice she travelled and painted in Europe. Her paintings were selected for a one-year tour of public galleries in North Dakota. Provincially, she was juried into the Alberta Society of Artists. Nationally, she was thrilled to be voted in the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour. She is represented by 10 commercial galleries in Alberta and one in the Mall of America.

Enthusiastic patrons have carried more than 2,000 of her original watercolours to at least 17 countries around the world. Glenda Beaver’s watercolours interpret nature in a way that shows her love of creation and our creator. Sensitive and radiant, her paintings visually communicate serenity. So the dream of being an artist that Glenda had as a child growing up on a farm in Iowa, unfolded and gave her pleasure as well as many others. You are invited to the opening of this show on September 5, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at the arts centre. Light refreshments will be served and John Beaver will be talking about Glenda’s art and answering questions at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. This show is free and will be open Monday to Thursday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call for weekend hours. For more information call Jane at 780-672-9949. Glenda Beaver's artwork will be on display from Sept. 5 to Oct. 4 at the Chuck MacLean Arts Centre.

Camrose United Church celebrated 22 charter United Church Women (UCW) on the 50th anniversary of the UCW on Sunday, June 10. The United Church of Canada’s website points out that “the United Church Women was formed in 1962 by the coming together of the Woman's Association and the Woman's Missionary Society, organizations with impressive legacies.” Prior to 1962 Laura Woods of Camrose was a member of the Country Women’s Group of Camrose United Church. “I would walk one mile north from our farm to be picked up to attend the meetings in Camrose,” Laura recalls. “I felt very welcomed and have rarely missed a meeting since.” Now in her nineties, Laura continues to attend UCW meetings and assist with different functions at the church. “I am proud to have been a member and I am presently a member of Unit L,” she added. “I have received a life membership; and as far as I know, I am the only original member of the Country Women’s Group still living.”

Another nonagenarian, Annabel Omoth, recalled the friendships that UCW brought about as the women worked together. Annabel remembers transformations such as the closing of the Ohaton United Church. “As we leave our country churches behind and attend the city churches, may we be ever reminded that

“The UCW also contributes a large portion of our congregation’s support for the Mission and Service Fund of the United Church of Canada." wherever we go, God is always with us, guiding and leading us.” She added, “No one will ever take away all the happy memories of those days together – worshipping, teaching, and working and just being friends with God and each other.” The luncheon after the service was prepared by several men of the church. It was deemed appropriate that the men prepare the luncheon since

UCWs have prepared luncheons for decades for all types of occasions. Reverend Alan Richards spoke of the UCW’s importance. “The Fall Suppers, the Saleabration, and the pie events are a few examples of their dedicated service. So, too, is their constant care of the church kitchen which is an integral part of our church community. UCW has hosted projects beyond the church. One example was hosting a tea for the Right Honourable Flora MacDonald when she spoke on her projects for women in Afghanistan.” The Camrose UCW also welcomes presentations on community service work done in other countries by our church members. Cathie Dobbie and Tif McNaughton respectively spoke on their work in El Salvador and Guatemala. “The UCW also contributes a large portion of our congregation’s support for the Mission and Service Fund of the United Church of Canada,” Alan added. “Most important, they provide a welcoming and supportive community for many of the women of our church. We are blessed by their actions and presence.”

By Murray Green

Olaf Pettersen has mastered the game of horseshoes over the years and has filled his trophy case with numerous hardware items to prove his prowess. The Camrose resident, formerly of Daysland, added two more trophies to give him 91 in total, after a horseshoe competition during the Bruce Stampede on July 29. Olaf lost the final by one point and came home with a second place finish in the singles tournament. However, his achievement got him excited about entering the doubles competition. "I didn't have a partner to play with, so I grabbed a stranger for the doubles event," explained Olaf, who again made it to the final match. "It was another close game and we came in second." Olaf has played in several Alberta championships and a world tournament in Red Deer that spanned over three days. "I have always loved a good horseshoe game," added Olaf, in an understatement. "I will continue to keep playing until my arm is worn out."

Shauna Arrowsmith, Co-owner Creative Bedrooms

…A Special Summer Feature In Camrose and area, a significant number of women hold positions of power and prestige. Many others own their own small businesses or are key players in their respective companies. The Camrose Booster is profiling some of the best, the brightest and the most prominent women who work, employ and lead in the community of which we are all so proud.

Equipped with knowledge obtained while earning a degree in Marketing from the University of British Columbia and coupled with an impressive variety of hands-on business experience, Shauna Arrowsmith has been a driving force in the recent rebranding of Creative Bedrooms. According to Greg Chrabaszcz, (her business partner and soon-to-be husband): “Shauna is one of a kind – a real diamond in the rough. She has unlimited energy and the brains to carry out any plan. Her vision for the store is identical to mine, so it’s been a real pleasure collaborating with her on a revised strategy and image formulation plan for our store.” On the sales floor, Shauna’s positive, cheerful attitude is welcoming and very contagious. Clients shopping for unique bedroom furniture and superior quality product are naturally drawn to her personality. Excellent communication skills, coupled with a thirst for knowledge pertaining to suppliers and their respective product lines means exceptional customer-focused service when browsing the showroom. Shauna has recently expanded her responsibility at Creative Bedrooms by working directly with some of the many new North American craftsmen, distributors and suppliers the store is now representing. Her rare abilities have been instrumental in negotiating very favourable pricing on product new and unique to the east central Alberta. There are more reasons than ever before to visit the enticing Main Street Camrose retail centre! Shauna Arrowsmith is a true woman of vision and a respected member of the Camrose business community.

Biconni's Sweet & Savory Whether you need the perfect hostess gift, want to satisfy your sweet tooth or want to turn an ordinary meal into something extraordinary, you’ll find everything you need at Biconni’s Sweet & Savory. Gift baskets, boxed chocolates and hostess gifts are on display along with terrific products for cooking or entertaining which are sure to entice your inner gourmet. “I love to cook and entertain,” says owner Connie Woods, "and I am inspired daily by the many creative ways to use our products. Our baskets and chocolates are also the perfect way to say thank you to a valued collegue or client, to congratulate someone for a job well done or just because.” This summer, Connie introduced 'Happy Hour' at the shop every Wednesday and Thursday from 3 to 5 p.m. During this time, there are two product samples available for tasting and for purchase at 10 percent off the retail price. There are also two additional products at 50 percent off. The promotion has had a great response, and Connie notes, “It’s a great way to try some of the delicious items we carry in addition to getting a great deal.” Candy bouquets are another item that will be coming this fall to the new location on Main Street at 4960-50 Street. Look for them on display in September. Custom arrangements may also be ordered. The Rogers chocolate display continues to be very popular, as well as chocolates by Daniel Le Chocolat Belge from Vancouver. “They are made with Calleleaut chocolate and are just divine!” says Connie. “The majority of them are gluten and wheat free.

Bra Necessities Since the day back in February 2010 when Bra Necessities first opened their door for business, Kim Turre’s vision has never wavered. Her objective is to ensure every client comes to realize her respective beauty. Figure-flattering bras, lingerie and swimwear are stocked for women of all shapes, sizes and ages. So what is it about Bra Necessities that makes their clientele feel so special and rewarded? The answer is surprisingly simple according to Kim (store owner and manager): “My team and I have lived in the lives of our customers. Individually, we have each had struggles trying to find what fits us. Just because a bra is expensive doesn’t mean it will fit properly.” (She stocks apparel from all price points.) “We’ve turned our own shopping frustrations into becoming educated as professional bra fitters. My staff and I all do bra fittings because we want every person who walks into our boutique to be guaranteed a perfect fit. Whether it’s something as simple as addressing slipping straps or something as complex as chronic upper back and neck pain, our goal is a solution that yields results.” Bra Necessities has grown. Back in January, a major move and significant increase in store size allowed Kim to create a discrete shopping environment with a calming atmosphere for all clientele. Each client is also given personal attention from either Kim or one of her knowledgeable staff. Whether it’s for everyday wear, a supportive bra for the work week, or lingerie for a romantic getaway, Kim has searched it out and stocked it for you. If it’s finally time to dip your toes into the lake or pool, she and her staff can also outfit you with swimwear that is beautiful and functional. You will feel great every minute it’s on! Her customers know it best: Kim and her staff know how to comfort your curves!

Well, okay, so maybe they’re not famous around the world, but when it comes to providing excellent customer service at the Norsemen Inn, they’ve gained an outstanding reputation throughout central Alberta. They’re well known for being the go-to people if you’re planning a banquet, a social function, a business meeting or an informal come-and-go. Eleven years ago, they began working together, managing the operations of Camrose’s original full-service hotel. But they didn’t start out in management roles; they earned them, working their separate ways up through the ranks. They’ve washed dishes, served food and beverages in the restaurant, Geri Ferner dining room, lounge and nightclub; they worked as night managers, each of them learning the skills they would require to become managers. Now, as they talk about their roles at the hotel, there’s a natural, easy friendliness between them gained over the last

11 years, over the hundreds of banquets they’ve coordinated, the staffing schedules, the training, the supervising, and, of course, the thousands of conversations they’ve had with customers, some of whom come into the hotel three times a day. They both agree that their favorite part of the job is working with the customers. It’s what drew them to the hospitality business in the first place. Geri started 23 years ago, fresh out of high school, working in the nightclub. Several years later, she was night manager and then manager. Chris followed a similar path. She began working part-time in the nightclub while attending Augustana and liked the work so much, she decided she had found a career in hospitality. Now they work in the same office at desks that face each other. Sometimes they finish each other’s sentences. Sometimes they laugh at exactly the same time. They share a similar sense of humor and a commitment to excellent Chris Cameron customer service. They enjoy the diversity each workday brings, the many different people they encounter and the situations which arise. If you’re ready to start planning an event or banquet and you would like it to run as smoothly as possible, give Chris or Geri a call today.

Disconcerting news-breaking stories about former agriculture minister Evan Berger collecting almost $150,000 in a transition allowance, while becoming “Senior Policy Advisor” just four months after being deposed of that ministry abound. Berger was awarded this posting without an open competition because he has the “exact skill set needed.” Albertans could justifiably ask “what skill set” based on his inaction as former agriculture minister. This appointment, moreover, violates conflict-of-interest legislation restricting ex-ministers from postings in their former ministries within a oneyear time frame. The above “plum” appointment exemplifies how our government considers itself exempt from the law, and/or absolved from any accountability. Albertans should let our Government know this is not acceptable. That, when coupled with “The plan could cancel 19 oil sands leases” (Calgary Herald, Aug 23/12) can only make Albertans hope that extreme industry pressure will produce more results fighting these Bill 36 property rights-related battles than rural landowners had in the past. As Saskiw (Wildrose deputy house leader) suggested, Albertans deserve answers (must demand answers) as to why PCinsiders like Evan Berger and Allaudin Meralli (with personal expenses topping $350,000) keep getting government plum postings, with complete disregard for the law and/or accountability to Alberta taxpayers. We would be wise to pressure MLAs into taking concerns about these fraudu-

lent property-related actions, and Bill 50/transmission line concerns to the House as fall session begins – reminding MLAs of their “job,” and that constituents’ concerns should be top priority. Strong MLA advocacy and accountability might have prevented Alberta’s current deplorable state, financially ($51 billion deficit; Fraser Institute) and democratically (centralized and dictated). In addition to the above disturbing stories, what we didn’t hear is equally important. There wasn’t a word about AUC’s hearing in Stettler, not even a ripple in the media. Nor did MLA Doug Griffiths notice CNIP’s panel of 12 (Concerned Neighbours in Partnership), battling ATCO’s “Preferred Route,” representing 31 affected land “parcels” in his constituency. Griffiths’ name and photo was (again) in The Booster Aug 14/11), proclaiming that he is “always available to assist constituents, "while being oblivious to his constituents being crushed under ATCO’s heavy heel. Griffiths’ report, instead, focused on chicken pox immunization, self-governance for Naturopaths,” and the nebulous Gateway Pipeline. Attendance at the EATL hearing was poor. Most affected farmers are already in the fields. No media was obvious. ATCO tried to justify its 4,000 MW preferred route. Despite CHIP panelists having “objected” and raising numerous “concerns” indicating they would not “be willing to provide access,” ATCO’s land agents submitted “pink slips” (filed as “exhibits” at the hearing) with “ticked” boxes showing landowners had no objections. ATCO’s most unsavory tactics included their lawyer insinuating that a CNIP panelist may not be telling the truth regarding a conversation held with ATCO’s “head planner.” Almost equally repellent was the statement that CNIP’s lawyer was promoting a “Conspiracy Theory” that was “a bit entertaining, at least at the outset” (Keough, Transcript, pp 2034-35; lines 8-9, p. 2,480 respectively).

With no opposition presented at a Camrose County public hearing, council passed second and third readings to Bylaw 1240 to redistrict Pt. SW 8-4919-W4 from A – Agricultural District to IPU (Institutional and Public Use District) on Aug. 14. "The applicant is requesting that these lands be rezoned to IPU to allow for the purchase and use of the lands by Cornerstone Christian Academy. The school recently applied to add new classrooms to their building, which will happen on their existing site, but it means that they will not have adequate parking facilities for the new students and staff," explained Anjah Howard, planning manager. "The additional land will also encroach into their existing playground requiring that the playground be relocated." The intention is that the subject lands will be used for parking and playground. There should not be any structures on the site. "This allows the school to solve the concerns raised by the planning department concerning limited parking and traffic congestion around the bus loading areas and the school grounds that could cause safety risks for the children attending the school," added Anjah. "The children need to cross the road to get to the parking lot and playground, but the children don't drive, so it has limited use." The second and third readings were passed. Large yard site Anjah also recommended that council give second and third reading to Bylaw 1241 to redistrict Pt. N1/2 of NW 15-49- 21-W4 from A – Agricultural District to CR2 - Large Lot Country Residential District as amended, to only include the logical yard site of 6.7 acres. "The applicant is wanting to subdivide out the existing acreage, but this cannot be approved under the subdivision regulations as an agricultural parcel because there is already an 80-acre split and another acreage," said Anjah. The applicant owns both the acreage and the north 80 acres and intends to combine them since the existing acreage is too small to develop (the lot is only a half acre in size). "This means that the number of lots on this property will not actually increase with the creation of this new lot and the consolidation of the other parcel. It will relocate the acreage and expand the lot size though, to make it more conducive to development," added Anjah. The proposed redistricting was to encompass 11.6 acres, including 1.5 acres of driveway. The proposal includes 5.7 acres of pasture land that has a farmland assessment rating of 62.7 per cent so it should be excluded from the request, adjusting the boundaries to 6.7 acres. Councillor Glen Nelson moved to reduce the size of the acreage from 11.6 acres to 6.7 acres prior to giving it second reading. County policy states that

rural land capable of producing a good cereal or forage crop will wherever possible be reserved for agricultural use. Land with a farmland assessment rating of 40 per cent or more will normally be zoned only for agriculture. "Because conflicts may arise between farm and nonfarm landowners, land with a low farmland assessment rating will not automatically be rezoned for non-agricultural use," Anjah informed council. In order to reduce conflicts with agriculture, council believes it is better to concentrate most multi-lot subdivisions in a few well-defined areas, leaving the rest of the county primarily agricultural. "Reducing the size of the acreage makes it more in line with our policies of protecting farmland, while at the same time allowing the separation of the existing yard site per the request of the applicant," concluded Anjah. Second and third readings were passed. Bittern Lake Council delayed giving second reading to Bylaw 1239 to redistrict Pt. NE 25-46-22-W4 from A – Agricultural District to CR1 - Small Lot Country Residential District pending response to confirmation that the county will support annexation and sees a completion of an area structure plan. Council was waiting for confirmation that the majority of servicing is being supplied by the Village of Bittern Lake and that the village was going to annex the lands into the village prior to development. "However, at the village council meeting they retracted the letter sent to us," informed Anjah. "The village is still supporting the project, but it will not be annexed into the village, so it becomes a project within the county." The applicant (Albert Krause) is seeking rezoning with the intent of creating seven acreage lots that will be served by the county. The lots are approximately 2.5 acres in size to allow building areas large enough to allow for field systems for the private sewage. The lots are larger than the existing parcels within the village to accommodate the sewage needs, but in general keep with the larger lot design of the existing residential development south of Highway 13 where the existing lots range from 0.75 acres to 1.5 acres in size. The development has also accommodated a future road allowance off the village road to allow for connectivity of future developments on the quarter to South Bittern Lake Road. The intention of the developer wasn't clear prior to the hearing whether he wants to have these lots serviced by the Village of Bittern Lake or by the county. "The developer has submitted some documentation related to their proposed plan, but it is not a full area structure plan and there are many gaps that should be addressed prior to final reading of the proposal," suggested Anjah.

Camrose VIP Club provides education and support By Dan Jensen

The Camrose Visually Impaired Persons (VIP) Club will be holding its annual fall barbecue at the Stoney Creek Centre September 10. "We do two barbecues a year, once in the spring and once in the fall," said Camrose VIP Club president Randy Simmet. "It's a good opportunity for everyone to socialize, sing a few songs, and enjoy some good food." The VIP Club holds meetings the first Monday of the month from October at the Superstore Community Room with the goal of providing education and fellowship so that those with vision loss, as well as their families, can live well and enjoy life. "We try to address issues that group members want to know more about, from changes in eye conditions to living with vision loss and impairment," said Simmet. "Simple things like learning to turn on the stove or marking cans in the cupboard so they can be easily identified." Meetings also feature presentations on the different services that are available to those with vision loss. "We had one meeting this past year in which Deb Cryderman, from Camrose Public Library, spoke about the audio books that the library has avail-

able. In another, CNIB did a presentation on some of the newest technological devices that have been designed to assist those who are blind or have vision impair-

ments. They showed us everything from simple magnifiers to closed circuit televisions. The meeting resulted in us gaining about five new members.."

The Camrose VIP Club believes that many in Camrose do not receive the variety of rehabilitation, accessibility and other services available to them because

of a simple lack of awareness. By sharing information about what is out there, it hopes it can get people to talk about their difficulties and come to the realization that they are not alone. "There's a huge sense of aloneness with vision loss," said Simmet. "Our group can help people see that there is a life beyond their impairment and that they can do more than just sit at home." The VIP Club holds a Ron McVee Memorial Walk every June to raise money for CNIB programs and services, including the white cane, sweeping cane or identification cane that is given to someone who is declared legally blind. "In past years, when the weather is nice, we have averaged about $5,000 in funds raised during the walk," said VIP Club secretary Joyce McVee. All of the funds stay in Alberta, something that we believe is important." The Camrose VIP Club stresses regular eye examinations by an eye care professional to ensure early detection and treatment of vision problems. Serious eye conditions such as glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration can be present in the eye without any symptoms of eye disease.

Plan wisely for fall and winter activities Now that we are relaxed, rejuvenated and energized after a nice summer, we are turning our thoughts to extra curricular activities during the next school year. There will be exciting opportunities for even the very young children, perhaps at the swimming pool and/or the Camrose Public Library; for students there is an assortment of activities in sports and/or a variety of performing and visual arts; even adults will have many choices in recreational, crafts and other learning activities. I am always amazed at the multitude of stimulating options available for all ages. In addition, there are endless openings for volunteers to serve in a wide range of organizations that exist for the purpose of, in some particular way, making a better community. Unfortunately, there is a disadvantage in having such a wide and appealing range of choices. For individuals, and especially for families, it poses the risk of imposing too heavy a load for a mother, a father, or a youngster to handle. At any age, one needs some quiet time to relax and think, time to sit down at a table and eat a proper meal, and ample hours to rest and sleep. It is good to have that in mind when planning for fall and winter activities. It is unfortunate that there is no one recipe for activity involvement that will be correct for all families or each individual; we each have to find our own way. The capacity to handle commitments varies greatly for each of us. What might be a killer load for some could be a breeze for another. The challenge for each family is to determine what is the optimum plan for its particular group of individuals, given the social, physical, intellectual, recreational, spiritual and material needs of each. Ideally, families will plan a workable schedule together that will allocate a fair share of responsibilities based on abilities, interests and resources. An unfair distribution of responsibilities that will allow enriching experiences for some and not others is sure to cause tension within a family. In addition to committing to activities for personal enjoyment, September is an opportune time to offer oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time and talents for community service. The need has never been greater because there have been cuts to previous sources of revenue for a number of our charitable and social programs. The bright side is that it opens the door of opportunity for personal development and enjoyment through community service. Volunteers invariably report that they personally benefit more than they ever contribute. In our community, hundreds of volunteers can see the tremendous difference made by their selfless efforts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they need only to look at our playgrounds and parks, our childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day care centre, Centra Cam Vocational Training Centre, dozens of youth groups, craft centre, food bank, Habitat for Humanity homes, etc. and etc. These are but a few examples of an endless list of amenities that are here because of volunteer initiative and service. It is truly satisfying to be able to look at a community asset and know that one helped put it there. May all our readers plan for enriching fall and winter activities that are appropriate for their families! May they also include a component of volunteerism! May they avoid overload frustration by allowing time for healthy meals at the family table and adequate rest and sleep.

Free soccer trial day By Murray Green

After a good season of soccer this summer, maybe it's time to try the indoor game this fall. The Camrose and District Soccer Association is trying to increase registration among the younger age group, so that they can increase the number of teams. "We typically have about 50 players register from the ages of six to 10 and this only gives us two teams in each age group," said Jenn Stone of CASA. "We are looking to invite some teams to come from out of town such as Wetaskiwin, Ponoka and Stettler." A fun day is planned for children to test the indoor game and enjoy the faster game. "We are going to run some fun drills on September 8 to show the players what it's like to play indoors and hopefully get some new athletes into the game," said Jenn. "We have 300 children at this age level play outside and only 50 play indoor. Other sports and activities come into play, but we hope to increase the number of players to make it more interesting." Soccer activities at the fieldhouse on September 8 begins with the six-year-old age group at 1:30, the eight-year-old group at 2:30 and 10-year-old players start at 3:30 p.m.

Williams named Cross Country Alberta facility operator of the Year By Murray Green

John Williams was named the Cross Country Alberta’s (CCA) Facility Operator of the Year last June. He was a great choice for Alberta’s groomer of the year 2011–12. It wasn’t really much of a surprise that he was chosen as the winner. John currently is the "go-to guy" for the grooming of the valley trails in Camrose. "We are incredibly fortunate to have him volunteering countless hours with the ski club. Somehow, during last winter’s ski season, he was able to provide magical if not miraculous skiing for us again in Camrose despite the crazy winter weather we had," said avid skier Mark Eggink. "From the initial snow, what seemed like two to three centimetres of dustings, in November and December, to the mild weather in January and trails that could have been pure ice. When we had the 30cm dump in 24 hours in March, John was faithfully out grooming and tweaking the tracks. He refused to give up on the snow and kept us skiing day in day out."

John Williams

Youth ski coaches headed out to many ski training sessions expecting to have to cancel due to poor/unsafe conditions. "This was never the case as we ended up skiing with the youth skiers at every scheduled practice after putting the skis on and finding the trails still in good shape," said Mark. "Having skied at other venues such as the Strathcona Wilderness Centre, Red Deer, Devon, Canmore, Islet Lake and Bragg Creek last winter, it would be hard to refute comments indicating our trails in Camrose were second to none, November through to March. This can only be attributed to John Williams’ dedication and resolve." The Ole Uffda Loppet was one of the very few loppets in northern Alberta able to actually take place last season. After masterfully setting the track Friday night before the loppet, John was up at 6 a.m. going over more than 15km of trails again after a light dusting of snow opted to fall in the early morning. "It was amazing to meet with John weekend afternoons on the

trails actually skiing after spending his colder mornings on the snowmobile getting them ready for us all," Mark added. "Perhaps his love of skiing the trails makes him so good at preparing them." John was a perfect fit for Cross Country Alberta’s groomer of the year. "Anyone lucky enough to have skied in Camrose last winter, and who realized he was the volunteer responsible for keeping the trails ski-able, while also knowing the conditions that he had to deal with day in day out, would have confidently predicted John Williams as the overwhelming winner. He is a master groomer and we are very thankful and lucky to have him with us," concluded Mark. Cross Country Alberta (CCA) is the sport governing body for cross-country skiing in the province.

U16 girls' soccer team earns silver medals at provincials Submitted

The 2012 edition of the Camrose U16 Tier 3 girls' soccer team captured silver medals at the provincials in Calgary. It was a great way to wrap up the season. "It has been a very challenging year for the girls, going through a lot of adversity, often playing shorthanded with nine or 10 players, in a Tier 2 league where we were still a strong, competitive team," said Weston Voytechek, head coach of the team. The team consisted of six second year players and 10 first year players, a good indication for the future of soccer in Camrose. "The girls have always worked hard at practices, and had committed themselves to playing soccer for the summer, which made the job a lot easier for

the coaching staff," said Micheyl Voytechek, assistant coach. The girls placed first, winning gold, in the U18 Tier 4 Night Classic Tournament in Camrose in June and third in the Red Deer tournament in July. The team was challenged by an allstar team from Ponoka, with players from Sylvan Lake and Stettler, and earned a spot to represent CASA in the provincial playdowns in Calgary. At provincials, in their first match they tied the second place Calgary team 3-3, then beat the number one team from Edmonton 2-1. Then the team took on the St. Albert club, winning 3-2 to qualify for the gold medal game. The girls went on to play in the gold match losing 2-0 to Sherwood Park, in a hard fought match. It was unfortunate that

Kaitlyn Duggan had fractured her ankle in the first half, and despite hitting a few posts and getting some good opportunities on some solid shots, it just was not meant to be. The team won silver which is a very good showing for Camrose Minor Soccer. "The team played very hard and with a lot of heart," said Dean Driedger, manager of the team. Scoring for Camrose in the tournament were Malinka Voytechek with two, Meghan Laberge with two, Jessica King, Kaitlyn Duggan, Kristina Throndson and Sarah Greer. Keeper Paige Driedger had a strong tournament, making several key saves throughout the weekend to keep the team close.

Final reading passes at county Continued from page 16

The planning department received an objection from the adjacent landowner who is concerned about traffic, noise and the impact this development will have on their existing acreage views and usage as a hobby farm. County administration also received a call related to concerns about the additional traffic and the impact on Highway 13. The request was that due to the new development the speed limit on Highway

13 be reduced to 80 kph. "The speed limit on the highway is not within the jurisdiction of the county or the village, but they were directed to request that the village ask Alberta Transportation, as the road authority, to consider reducing the speed limit. "The reason we have gone back and forth is that the Village of Bittern Lake wants me to follow the City of Camrose standards," said Albert. "I think it should follow the county standards. That is why the withdrawal of the letter and that I am seeking county approval."

Councillor Brian Austrom moved to have second reading. Third reading will not occur until the county receives an area structure plan. Tax sale Camrose County set the tax sale date as Friday, December 7, at 2 p.m. and that the proceedings are to be held in the county administration office. As per the Municipal Government Act, section 418, each municipality must offer for sale, at a public auction, any parcel of land shown on its tax arrears list if the tax arrears are not paid.

Charchun competes in baseball western tournament in Saskatoon By Murray Green

Kyler Charchun has had little time to enjoy the gold medal that his team, the Sherwood Park Athletics, won in the Baseball Alberta provincials. The Camrose ball player was busy preparing for the western championships in peewee baseball, played in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on Aug. 23 to 26. "I wanted some higher competition for my second year of peewee baseball," said Kyler, about his decision to suit up for the Athletics this summer. "It is better ball and I wanted to play at a higher level (performance) this year," said Kyler, who was named team captain. "I learned quite a bit from my coaches. It is a lot more commitment and practice. When you practice more, you learn more." The performance level is equal to the triple-A level, while the competitive division Camrose plays in is at the double-A level. The pitcher, catcher and third baseman from Camrose enjoys the extra time on the freshly cut grass. "I have pitched since my first year of mosquito baseball. I really enjoy pitching because you are in control of the game," added Kyler. "You have everyone behind you and it makes you feel stronger. I like the pressure of pitching. You have to watch who is up more at the higher level. You have to change your speeds a lot because there are better players." The Athletics played 66 games and won about two-thirds of them. The team finished first during league play and were unbeaten in the round robin portion of the provincials where the Athletics team met its rivals, the Spruce Grove White Sox. "They were the team to beat all year. For them to win provincials, they had to beat us twice. Spruce Grove won the first game 10-7 and I was ready to pitch the

second game," said Kyler. "We were down one run until the fourth inning, when we scored five runs. Spruce Grove's pitcher ran out of innings to pitch, and we jumped on them to win 10-3." Kyler pitched six and a third of an inning before giving way to the closer. The local player batted fourth for the Athletics and his hitting steadily improved all season. "Spruce Grove had a very good pitcher and it felt great to beat him in the final." The Camrose pitcher has three gold medals in baseball to match his three in hockey. "It was a tough decision to leave my friends and play in Sherwood Park. But, we (the team) picked Devon Heck up to go to westerns, so that was good," said Kyler. "It is exciting to go to westerns. Last year we won silver medals, so it would be nice to win this year. It will depend on our bats." The westerns had eight

teams, including the White Sox. "It will be at an even higher level, so that will be exciting," Kyler said.

Seniors, youth have more in common than they may realize Bev Betkowski Media relations associate University of Alberta Seniors and youths have more in common than they may realize, according to new research from the University of Alberta. Interviews with seniors and a group of university students who work side-by-side in a theatre group, showed some surprises on both sides of the generational divide, said lead researcher Janet Fast, a profes-

sor in the University of Alberta’s Department of Human Ecology. “There was a breaking down of age-related stereotypes that worked both ways.“ The findings, presented recently to the British Society of Gerontology, indicate that by sharing creative time together (telling stories and performing side by side), seniors and youths were able to bridge generation gaps and break down unfair stereotypes, said Fast. Busting age-related myths is important, she said.

“Negative stereotypes about youths and seniors cause an artificial divide and fear of the other generation. Unfair beliefs about dependency among seniors and about a lack of commitment and work ethic of today’s youth are not good for society. That can segregate whole groups of people and devalue what each generation contributes.” The qualitative study included interviews with 15 seniors, 14 students and four current and former staff in the theatre company, asking about atti-

tudes on aging, shared experiences and how being part of an intergenerational theatre group influences their well-being. Those interviewed ranged in age from 21 to 85. After working on stage with their senior counterparts, youths said they were no longer afraid of aging themselves, Fast noted. In their interviews, many of the students said they had mistakenly assumed elderly people were lonely, disabled and dependent, but instead found them to be ‘playful, young and genuine’.

The seniors in turn liked the energy of their youthful counterparts, and also expressed a newfound confidence in them as future citizens. Fast noted that both age groups were enriched by their collaboration; some of the seniors expressed appreciation for having gained a few surrogate grandchildren, while several students had more appreciation for spending time with their families, including grandparents.

Inaugural Vikings Wall of Fame induction slated for Sept. 8 By Dan Jensen Yvonne Visser, Clarence and Irvin Servold, Garry Gibson, Karel Lunde and the 1974-75 Vikings hockey team will be the first inductees to the University of Alberta Augustana Campus Vikings Wall of Fame dinner and silent auction Sept. 8. "It was difficult to choose who to honour the first year, mostly because there were so many athletes from which to choose," said Augustana athletics director Greg Ryan and member of the Augustana athletic advisory board, which made the final selections. "We had some very interesting discussions." Ryan said the idea for an Augustana Viking Wall of Fame has been tossed around for a number of years. "It was just important to us to get it started. There are many people who have made very significant contributions to Augustana or Camrose Lutheran College and to the City or Town of Camrose." Yvonne Visser Visser was a Canadian National Team biathlete for 12 years, attending Olympic Winter Games in 1992 and 1994. She graduated from the University of Calgary in 1996 and then certified as a massage therapist with specialization in sport massage. She has been a team massage therapist at Pan Am Junior Games, World Cups, and World Championships. She accompanied Canadian Olympic athletes to Torino in 2006 and Vancouver in 2010, as well as Canadian paralympians to Bejing in 2008. Visser was recognized with Augustana's Distinguished Alumna Award in 2009. Dr. Garry Gibson Dr. Garry Gibson and his wife, Dorothy, have served Augustana for over 30 years. Their motto has been, through outdoor leadership and athletics, to lead young people to a greater awareness of the natural world, themselves, others and ultimately, their God. They continue to be involved with Augustana, church and sports. Based on his Ph.D. research in 1976, Dr. Gibson designed the Outdoor Leadership program at Augustana. In 1973, with a $5,000 grant for ski equipment from the Rotary Club of Camrose, he was able to start a cross country ski program, which he coached until he retired in 1996. Dr. Gibson received Augustana's Betty Osterud Award for excellence in service in 1995. Karel Lunde

Above: Dr. Garry Gibson carried the Olympic flame when it arrived in Camrose in January, 2010. Right: Irvin and Clarence Servold with the skis they used when they were winning championships.

Karel Lunde came to Camrose Lutheran College from the United States as a pastor, teacher and coach in the late 1950s. Under his leadership from 1959 to 1985, the Vikings became the football team to beat in the East Central Alberta region. His former students established the Karel Lunde Memorial Award in 2005 to honour his legacy. Clarence Servold Clarence Servold became Canada's Junior Nordic Combined champion two years after graduating from Camrose Lutheran College in 1946. He studied engineering in Seattle and Denver, earning U.S. accolades and a 2004 induction to the University of Denver Ski Hall of Fame. Clarence competed for Canada at the 1956 and 1960 Olympic Winter Games. Afterwards he coached Canada's Nordic Ski Team and continued to compete internationally. Through his long career, his engineering skills and passion for skiing were combined in efforts to design or rebuild ski facilities across Canada. Clarence was inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame in 1980 and the Canadian Ski Hall of Fame in 1984, and received Augustana's Distinguished Alumnus Award in 2001. At the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics, he was invited to light the Canore Nordic Centre's Olympic torch. Irvin Servold Irvin Servold won Canada's

first ski jumping championship while a student at Camrose Lutheran College, and twice represented Canada in the Winter Olympic Games: 1956 and 1960 in both Cross Country and Nordic Combined. He won the International Intercollegiate Ski Meet in Banff three years in a row. He was Nordic Combined National Champion in 1955 and 1972, and the University of Alberta's Outstanding Male Athlete in 1959. He continues to compete around Alberta and B.C. each winter, and also internationally every year in the Masters' World Cup. Irvin is a life member of the Canadian Olympic Association and the Canadian Ski Association. He was one of the founding members of Cross Country Alberta, known in its early days as the Alberta Ski Division.. He has coached at national and international levels in Nordic Combined, Cross Country and Ski Jumping. In 1978 he helped with the initial site selection for the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympic Games. Irvin was inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame in 1980 and into the Canadian Ski Hall of Fame in 1985. He was recognized with a place on the University of Alberta Wall of Fame in 1987, and received Augustana's Distinguished Alumnus Award in 2001. Vikings hockey team The 1974-75 Vikings hockey team â&#x20AC;&#x201C; made up of future farmers, teachers and pastors out of a school of 390 students

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; won the first Canadian Colleges Athletic Association hockey championship in Sydney, Nova Scotia. The win on the national stage paved the way for a season played in Europe, and then the inaugural 1981 Viking Cup hockey tournament in Camrose. In 1974-75, the Vikings were inducted into the Alberta Hockey Hall of Fame. Master of ceremonies Guest speakers for the Wall of Fame dinner will include former NHL stars Bryan Trottier, Craig Simpson and Sheldon Kennedy, as well as Olympic skating champion Jamie Sale. Trottier played 18 seasons in the NHL, winning four Stanley Cups with the New York Islanders and two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburg Penguins. He also won one Stanley Cup as a coach with the Colorado Avalanche. He was a 1997 inductee to the Hockey Hall of Fame. Sheldon Kennedy was the captain of the 1989 Memorial Cup champions, the Swift Current Broncos. He played for eight seasons in the NHL and helped Canada win a gold medal at the World Junior Championships in 1988. Simpson was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins second overall in the 1985 NHL Entry draft. Midway through his third NHL season he was traded as part of a package to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Paul Coffey. He scored a career high 56 regular season goals during the 1987-88 season and won two

Stanley Cups with the Oilers in 1988 and 1990. He retired as a player in 1996, finishing with 497 career NHL points. He holds the record for best career playoff shooting percentage, at 23.66. In 2009, Simpson participated in the first season of CBC's Battle of the Blades, a made-forTV figure skating competition that paired eight former NHL stars with female figure skaters. Simpson is currently an NHL colour commentator for CBC television. Jamie Sale won the Olympic gold medal with her figure skating partner, David Pelletier, in 2002. The pair was inducted into the Skate Canada Hall of Fame in 2008 and the Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame on March 26, 2009. In the first year of CBC's Battle of the Blades, Sale won the competition with Craig Simpson, whom she married on June 20 of this year. As part of the dinner celebration and scholarship fundraising effort, Trottier and Sale will be auctioned off as golfers for the Vikings golf tournament Sept. 9. Information on tickets for the Wall of Fame dinner and silent auction may be obtained by visiting

The CAMROSE BOOSTER August 28, 2012


Kevin John McConnell October 4, 1963 – August 23, 2012 Kevin John McConnell, a guy with a really big heart, had his heart let him down as he slept during the night of August 23, 2012. Kevin was a devoted husband (Wendy) and a really great dad to the sons of whom he was ever proud (Ryan and Tyson). In the days preceding his unexpected passing, Kevin was eagerly making plans to prepare for the job he cherished beyond words – teaching junior high students at Charlie Killam School, Camrose. He felt a special bond to students who struggled with life’s challenges. He invested extraordinary amounts of his free time on weekends and evenings assisting students who required extra effort in achieving higher grades. Prior to this teaching position in Camrose, he used his formal education and own life experiences in guiding, helping and teaching students at Sedgewick Phoenix Outreach for 11 years. Kevin was born to parents John “Jack” and Shirley of the rural Sedgewick area. He had fond memories of growing up on the farm – a career he often longed to pursue. After completing high school in Sedgewick, Kevin worked in banking for a few years. Later, he tried his hand at selling automobiles. His ability to relate to anyone anytime and his infectious charisma assured him success in the auto business. However, Kevin was always passionate about learning, and he loved attending courses and classes. He was an exceptionally gifted student throughout his life. He is fondly remembered for routinely earning highest grade marks and for receiving many advanced education scholarships. This trend continued when he returned to the University of Alberta in 1991 as an adult student to pursue a degree in education. His commitment to success meant commuting daily to classes in Edmonton. To provide for his family during these years, he worked part-time at Bethany Care Centre. His rigorous schedule included many overnight shifts and countless weekends. He was plagued with feelings of guilt during this time period for not being able to spend the time he longed for with his family doing the things they loved – golf, simple vacations and watching movies. Kevin was widely recognized for his athletic ability in his younger years. Few could outrun, outjump or outscore him. His hockey career took him to hockey evaluation camp at the WHL level. He lived hard and played harder. He was fearless and ultra-competitive. When his boys were in sports of their own, Kevin made sure he was their coach in soccer and hockey. His teams loved Coach Kevin. Winning was the only option. His players came to work and win. Few individuals could outsmart or outwit Kevin. Rarely was he stumped on a history question or anything relating to the World Wars. He was equally proficient and knowledgeable on current events, anywhere in the world. Kevin had a wide circle of friends always ready to help him and spend time with him. He will be sorely missed and long remembered. Kevin was predeceased by his parents and grandparents. Friends and relatives are left with vivid memories of a guy whose life was cut way too short. Remembering him is his immediate family Wendy, Ryan (girlfriend Kristen Hauser) and Tyson; brothers Michael (Barb) McConnell of Sedgewick and Scott (Melanie) also of Sedgewick; mother-in-law Judy Jerrett; sister-in-law Marnie (Ron) Pilger of Camrose; and “Grandma” Mary Cameron of Sedgewick. Also missing his love and laughter are his nephews and nieces Colby, Micaela, Kellie, Jenna and Sean McConnell, and Christie, Landon and Mackenzie Pilger. A funeral service celebrating the life of Kevin will be held on Saturday, September 1, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. at Camrose United Church. Interment will follow at the Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose. Memorial donations are gratefully accepted to the Heart and Stroke Fund or your preferred charity. Burgar Funeral Home is in charge of all arrangements. Phone 780-672-2121

Everet Francis Batke December 9, 1927 – August 22, 2012 Mr. Everet Batke of Camrose passed away on Wednesday August 22, 2012 at the age of 84 years.

A funeral service was held on Monday, August 27, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. from Ferry Point Church with Rev. David Eriksson officiating. Interment followed in Ferry Point Cemetery. Memorial contributions are gratefully accepted to S.T.A.R.S. or the charity of one’s choice. To send condolences, please visit

Beryl “Babe” Eleanor Chapman 1934 – 2012 Beryl completed her journey here on earth on August 19, 2012 at the age of 77 years. Beryl was born November 26, 1934 in Edmonton Alberta, the youngest of six children of Alice and George Head, and was affectionately called “Babe”. She met and married the love of her life Norris Chapman on October 22, 1954. Beryl and Norris raised three children – Penny-Lynn, Dan and Ron (Guy). They lived in Edmonton until the summer of 1977, when they relocated to Camrose, Alberta. Beryl and Norris both were very involved in showing and breeding their beloved dogs. Beryl really enjoyed training and competing in obedience trials with her Shelties Piper and Megan. In 1979, Beryl and a friend opened the first pet store and grooming parlor in Camrose. Beryl was a very compassionate and caring woman; her door and heart were always open when anyone needed a listening ear or help. She learned to speak Spanish so she could befriend and help immigrants from South America settle in Camrose. She had many friends and was loved by all. Beryl was a member of Century Meadows Baptist Church where her love for her Heavenly Father was nurtured. Beryl is survived by her daughter Penny-Lynn of Lacombe, son Dan (Shirley) of Kerrobert, SK and son Ron (Cindy) of New Norway; seven grandchildren Christine, Angela, Tammy, Kevin, Drew, Eric, Lewis; and seven great-grandchildren Tekla, Shyla, Dyson, Miranda, Siara, Jazmine and Drake. Beryl has two surviving brothers Cyril (Nettie) Calgary and Bud (Pat) of Edmonton. Beryl will forever live in the hearts of her family and friends, including her constant companion “Tuppy”, until we see her again. A funeral service was held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 25, 2012 at Century Meadows Baptist Church in Camrose, AB. Interment took place at Valleyview Cemetery, Camrose.

Sorenson calls for proposals to improve accessibility Crowfoot Member of Parliament Kevin Sorenson is announcing that again this year, local organizations can apply for funding of projects that will create or enhance accessibility for people with disabilities through the Government of Canada’s Enabling Accessibility Fund. “I always invite everyone to consider using this fund to assist those in our riding with disabilities," said Sorenson. "These small projects can include renovations, construction and retrofitting of buildings, modification of vehicles for community use or enhancements to make information and communication technologies more accessible.

“The Government of Canada recognizes the abilities of all Canadians and is committed to removing barriers, including here in our Crowfoot riding. Through the Enabling Accessibility Fund, we can improve access to facilities, activities and services. This helps ensure that every one of us can choose to participate more fully." Organizations can submit proposals until October 5, 2012, and can receive up to $50,000 per project. At least 25 percent of the total eligible proposed project costs must come from nonfederal government sources and must be confirmed at application stage. The Enabling Accessibility

Fund was originally announced in 2007 and extended in 2010. The $45-million commitment includes a new mid-sized component to try and expand the use of the Fund. “Eligible activities include things like: constructing an interior or exterior ramp; installing wider doors or automated door openers; building an accessible washroom; and more," said Sorenson. "As a bonus, this effort also helps create jobs in construction and renovation in smaller communities.” To find out how to apply for funding or for more information about the Fund, visit www.hrsdc.

Sea Serpents garner 30 medals By Murray Green

The Camrose Sea Serpents earned 30 medals during the Swim Alberta provincials and Kyle Sieben broke another record at the Kinsmen Centre in Edmonton, Aug. 17 to 19. The Sea Serpents won 10 gold, garnered four silver and added 16 bronze medals to have the top medal count from a club outside of major Alberta cities. Kyle shattered a provincial record in the boys' 14 and under 800 metre freestyle event a week after he broke Sea Serpent teammate Brenden Hilgartner's provincial record. Kyle set the record at 9:56.24 and then smashed it a week later with an amazing 9:46.42 time at provincials. He just missed setting the record in the 400m event on Saturday by 0.7 seconds, so he was once again determined to set a new mark in the 800m event. "It definitely felt faster to me as I swam the 800m race," said Kyle. "It felt good to break the record again. I was a little surprised that I was able to knock over 10 seconds off of my time." Although the season just ended, Kyle is eager to keep improving for another shot at a record next year. Provincial results

Ainsley Burnett received a silver medal in the girls' eight and under 25m freestyle. Amelia Marcin was awarded four gold medals in the 18 and over 50m breaststroke, 200m

individual medley, 200m freestyle and the 100m breaststroke in addition to breaking a few of the 18 and over provincial records in the new category. Amy Cookson earned a bronze medal in the girls' 13 and 14 100m breaststroke. Bennett Rolston received two bronze medals in the boys' nine and 10 25m butterfly and in the 200m freestyle event. Brenden Hilgartner was awarded three gold medals in the boys' 17 and under 1,500m freestyle, 400m freestyle and in the 800m freestyle. Callum Gau collected a silver medal in the boys' nine and 10 100m butterfly and a bronze in the 50m butterfly. Carter Rolston received two bronze medals in the boys' 12 and under 400m freestyle and in the 50m freestyle. Cassara Holm was awarded a gold medal in the girls' nine and 10 200m freestyle and bronze medals in the 50m freestyle and 100m freestyle. Chad Sieben earned two bronze medals in the boys' 13 and 14 200m medley relay and 200m freestyle relay. Gaetes Lomas received two bronze medals in the boys' 14 and under 200m medley relay and 200m freestyle relay. Kyle Sieben earned two gold medals in the boys' 13 and 14 400m freestyle and 800m freestyle events, setting a new provincial record in the 800m

event. Kyle collected silver in the 100m freestyle and picked up two bronze medals in the 200m medley relay and 200m freestyle relay. MacKenzie Rolston captured two bronze medals in the boys' 14 and under 200m medley relay and 200m freestyle relay.

GMC Terrain More of everything

By Dan Jensen

The 2012 GMC Terrain at McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC gives you greater fuel efficiency, more broad-shouldered style, more advanced powertrain technology, more up to the minute features, and more warranty protection. "It's a very impressive vehicle," said McClellan Wheaton Chevrolet Buick GMC dealer principal Will McClellan. The GMC terrain is winner of the Consumers' Digest Best Buy Award and a 2011 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Contemporary design

Visually, the Terrain cabin showcases the best in contemporary design with clean lines, refined shapes and premium textures. There's also an abundance of space here, so five adults can ride in comfort, even on longer journeys. Long-legged passengers will particularly appreciate Terrain's multi-flex rear seat, which slides forward and back up to 200 mm. The subtly-bolstered driver's seat strikes just the right balance of comfort and support, and the thick-rimmed wheel tilts and telescopes to help you find precisely the right driving position. Climate control and a standard air filtration system help everyone breathe easy, and cupholdlers are conveniently positioned in the centre console doors and rear centre armrest. Terrain is also designed for the unique requirements of modern life, with no fewer than four 12-volt power outlets for powering mobile phones, laptops and other elec-

tronic necessities. Large, clear analogue gauges are supplemented by a multi-function Driver Information Centre. There's even an oil life monitoring system that may help save you money by reducing oil change frequency, protect your engine from premature wear, and reduce your carbon footprint. Cargo

With Terrain, transporting cargo of all shapes and sizes is a breeze. Behind the MultiFlex second row seats there are almost 900 lites of space for groceries, luggage and sports gear. When you have bulkier items to contend with, the rear seats are a 60/40 split-folding design, so you can carry your cargo and up to two rear passengers at the same time. Or you can fold both seatbacks down and more than double the available cargo space to a very accommodating 1,809 litres. SLE-2 and SLT models also feature standard roof rails that make it easy to attach a variety of racks and cargo boxes. For even bigger challenges â&#x20AC;&#x201C; hauling the boat or snowmobile up to the cottage, for instance â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Terrain is rated to tow trailers up to 1,588 kg when properly equipped.

mere 6.1 litres per 100 km on the highway. Drivers looking for even more muscle will gravitate to the available direct-injected 3.0 litre V6, which puts out 264 horsepower and 222 pounds-feet or torque. A sophisticated fourwheel independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes with ABS ensure that Terrain's handling and braking are a match for its engine performance.

Terrain blends the utility of an SUV with on-road dynamics that will please any enthusiastic driver. With a standard 182-horsepower direct-injected engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, Terrain's acceleration is spirited. Its efficiency is impressive, too, with fuel consumption of just 9.2 litres per 100 km in the city and a

Think of Terrain as your high-tech steel-and-glass bodyguard. It's equipped to help you avoid danger, with four-wheel disc brakes, a StabiliTrak electronic stability control system, and available intelligent all-

wheel drive that makes the most of available traction. It's on your side if a crash can't be avoided, protecting you with six standard airbags and a sturdy steel safety cage around the passenger compartment. SLT models also offer the additional reassurance of available lane departure warning and forward collision alert. You can even count on the Terrain to look after you when the collision is over. OnStar's Automatic Crash Navigation feature informs a trained advisor who can then dispatch the emergency services you may need directly to your location.

Battle River Community Foundation director Corey Kudrowich presents a cheque for $2,927 to Camrose Public Library director of library services Deb Cryderman.

The Battle River Community Foundation has granted $2,927 to the Camrose Public Library. The grant was made possible by the Ross and Denise Irving Endowment Fund. Denise Irving felt strongly about literacy and the power of reading. To this end she created the Ross and Denise Irving Endowment Fund with the income to be distributed to the Camrose Public Library. Beginning in 2004 and up to and including this year's grant, the total amount awarded from this fund is $59,854. According to Deb Cryderman, director of library services, the entire 2011 grant money was used for programming at the library. "In 2011, 2,000 people took part in the library's programs," said Cryderman. "In the first six months of 2012, 7,211 people have taken part in 646 different programs." Cryderman points out that the grants received on behalf of the Irving Fund make a huge positive difference in the programs the library can offer. The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support projects and organizations in east central Alberta, such as the Camrose Public Library, which benefit local communities and have a positive impact on the future. Contributions to the Battle River Community Foundation are permanently invested in endowment funds, currently valued in excess of $6.726 million. The principal remains untouched and the income is made available annually to support local projects and organizations. Some grant funding is also made available by generous donors who make annual gifts to the Battle River Community Foundation. Since its founding in 1995, the Battle River Community Foundation has granted over $1,556,568 to various projects and initiatives.

Youth volunteers source of inspiration Every year countless young people undertake volunteer work, whether as part of a school project or from personal interest. Early altruistic and formative experiences like these have a great influence on their future adult lives. By becoming a volunteer, young people acquire a sense of responsibility and a feeling of belonging that will follow them throughout their lives. As well as giving them a first work experience, volunteering will also allow them to develop

autonomy while they broaden their horizons.

Summer and weekends

Feeling useful

Volunteer opportunities abound during the summer or on weekends, when young people aren’t busy at school. Many different areas are open to teens who want to satisfy a need to contribute to the greater good. These might include staffing an organization’s information desk, coaching a sports team, getting involved in a fundraising activity, or working at a kiosk during a charity event.

When young people embark on volunteer work, ideally around the age of twelve, they learn about themselves and become more familiar with their community. Getting involved gives them the enormous pleasure of feeling useful. Volunteering is also a beneficial experience for young people when the time comes for them to join the job market. Their proven commitment to society will reassure future employers.

Matiushyk hones ball skills in Japan By Murray Green

Daniel Matiushyk had an experience of a lifetime when he attended the World Children's Baseball Fair (WCBF) in Mie, Japan, from July 22 to 30. He was able to develop his baseball skills, learn about different cultures and experience life in Japan. "It was really cool to meet people from around the world who enjoy baseball as much as I do," said Daniel. "I enjoyed every day and learning how to make plays faster." The 11-year-old Ecole Sifton School student wrote a letter to Baseball Alberta to enter a contest to attend the fair. He was one of five players from Alberta to go to the baseball fair that had 15 countries represented. "They taught us how to slip and slide using water and it gave us more confidence in sliding," added Daniel. "We had four stations and we rotated through them. Sometimes we had batting twice. The drills were harder as the camp went along." The Camrose peewee baseball player received a uniform, ball glove, bat, cleats and everything else he needed at the camp. Home run slugger Sadaharu Oh of the Japanese league offered a few batting tips to the youngsters. Players from Japan, Korea and China held games for the players to watch. The WCBF is an event held annually to promote worldwide baseball expansion. The World Children's Baseball Fair was established in the interest of fostering an environment of world understanding and cultural exchange through the celebration of baseball. "Three countries were grouped together for sessions, so they had to have interpreters for us. The Japanese instructors would explain a drill. We were together with French and Mexican players, so it had to be explained in three different languages. It was hard to communicate sometimes." The Canadian athletes were one of the best countries when it came to mingling with others. "We tried to mix with other cultures to gain the full experience. We had friends on the New Zealand and Venezuela teams," said Daniel. Daniel defied the odds by meeting the requirements for going to the fair. He had to be from Alberta, 10 or 11 years old and be picked as one of five athletes to go to the fair. "My batting improved the most at the camp. Now I can take what I have learned to my coaches to add some drills," said Daniel, who kept track of them in a notebook that was provided. He also valued the cultural events. "We were one of the first countries to arrive. It took us 30 hours, so having a relaxing day after we arrived was good. It allowed us time to rest and meet some other players before the camp started."

Women are increasingly turning to threading as their method of eyebrow shaping.

The popularity of eyebrow threading has grown so quickly that many people may wonder about its origins and benefits. Eyebrow threading is an ancient art that is believed to have developed in the Middle East. Threading was part of many different cultural rites of passage. Iranian women would have it done across their entire faces, removing all peach fuzz. Their eyebrows would also be shaped, giving them a precise look. These procedures were generally reserved for women who were about to be married or reach adulthood. In North America, threading has become more commonplace in recent years -- growing from a relatively obscure grooming technique to one popular in many salons. Threading must be done by an experienced professional. A cotton thread is twisted around the hairs set to be removed and then tugged. Hairs are pulled out at the follicle level. Because entire rows of hairs can be removed at the same time, it is easier to get straight, more distinctive lines than with tweezing. Threading has many advantages. When handled by an experienced stylist, eyebrow threading is essentially painless. Threading achieves precise results, because threading targets only a few hairs at a time. Threading is hygienic because nothing but clean strands of the cotton come in contact with the face. Women often find that threading is also effective at removing stray hairs on the chin and upper lip. Threading is poised to become one of the most popular methods of facial hair removal.

Helpful Tips for Writing Classified Ads Which Get Results! Be Thorough Sure you want your ad to stand out from the rest, but don’t skimp on the sort of information that sells. The item’s condition, size, age, brand name, and color are some of the basics readers want to know. Without them, your ad may be overlooked.

Steer Clear of Abbreviations Okay, so you want to include all the important basics. Don’t use strange abbreviations because our ads are designed to spell all the important details. Besides, you are not paying by the line, but by the word, so there is really no need to abbreviate.

CAMERATA CHAMBER CHOIR seeks new singers, all voices, especially Tenor or Bass. Monday evening rehearsals. Information: 780-672-3372.

Be Honest Exaggerating your item’s finer points may bring in a lot of responses, but a buyer who’s misled won’t appreciate it and will take his business somewhere else.

State Your Price The cost of an item is one of the most important concerns of want ad readers. Ads showing prices are ones which get results. Giving a price also serves to “weed out” those buyers not in your price range.

Be Accessible Including a telephone number or address puts you in touch with potential buyers. Be sure to state the hours you can be reached: a caller who can’t get through the first time often won’t call again.

Don’t hesitate to call us with any questions or problems you may have regarding advertising. Our professionally trained sales staff know the ropes, and would be happy to pass their know-how on to you. That’s why we’re here, to help you get the results you deserve.

UNIDIRECTIONAL FLUSHING PROGRAM Unidirectional Flushing is a method of cleaning the water mainlines through a network of flushing sequences with the water being discharged from a fire hydrant. The flushing of the pipes will dislodge and remove mineral deposits, sediments and biological deposits that accumulate over time. The City of Camrose implements the Unidirectional Flushing (UDF) Program to: - maintain and improve the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water quality. - improve water flow and pressure in the water distribution system. - reduce bacterial growth, restore disinfectant residual, and improve water color. Unidirectional Flushing uses 40% less water than traditional flushing programs due to increased water velocity. In addition to scouring the water pipes, the UDF Program also gives the City the opportunity to check, exercise, and maintain all water valves and hydrants. Starting with Zone A (in Area 1) in early August, the UDF Program will continue for 2-3 months. Water service should not be disrupted during the flushing process. There may be a slight drop in pressure or a presence of discoloration in the water from the minerals and sediments being flushed from the pipes. If a discoloration is noticed, please turn the tap off for 15 minutes and flush from your bathtub tap until the water is clear. For more information about the Unidirectional Flushing Program, please contact: City of Camrose Engineering Services 780-672-4428
